I seem to be tripping over myself with cutting-edge foodie experiences at the moment.
Yesterday I stumbled upon Ropewalk in Maltby Street not so far from the now over-popular Borough Market in London.
A clutch of small-scale top quality producers selling their stuff from rented arches under the railway....this is the former
NOW Sparrow Gin has taken over the space - and wow - it was great too!
Bespoke gin producers are all the rage at the moment - and this gin was the cat's whiskers.
Great gin cocktails - I had a gin-based Bloody Mary complete with stick of celery and black pudding!
And don't just take my word for it - my mate John was sold on it too!
But the thing I REALLY REALLY liked - was the space: literally someone's garage - but somehow it really worked!
I loved the messy make-do vibe.
Word has it, that come the Autumn, Sparrow Gin will be curating bespoke gin nights in nearby Lasco's.
Think wood-panelling, slipper baths, candle-light, London smog - and gin!
